From 15th of March 2019, the company Integrico Europe GmbH has become Pioonier GmbH.

This completes the first step of the development of a railway sleeper made of recycled plastic. The technology of the low-temperature compounding process for the manufacture of plastic sleepers, originally imported from the USA, has now been established in Germany. As a result, the environmental footprint and the cost structure of our ties is fundamentally improving. In addition, the manufacturing process for US-based sleepers has been further enhanced with the goal of providing our customers with a durable, cost-effective and sustainable plastic sleeper.

With our new partner, Relux Kunststofftechnik GmbH, we now have a production facility in Magdeburg where we will produce our railway sleepers made of recycled plastic. The production at our new plant will start this summer.
